YoB&E: Day 201--Bakers

In my opinion, being a baker makes for a mediocre adventure at best, but here it is anyway:

(Click to skip the theme song.)

This is probably my least favorite of the "Great Adventures," but it seems like the animators must have been having a lot of fun. Nevertheless, I was thinking about it today, and I wonder if this was meant to be an homage to Jim Henson's series of counting films that all featured a baker at the end. That would be kind of an oblique homage, though, so maybe it's just me trying to make a connection where none exists.

Strange thing: I've seen those counting films all my life but never knew until relatively recently that Jim Henson made them. He even appeared in one of them. As a juggler. Because he could juggle, apparently. Was there anything that man couldn't do?
